I guess everyone sees what they want to see.  Personally Superman was my favorite part of the movie, particularly the (sadly few) Clark Kent moments.  (On a side note, this is by far the sexiest Clark that's ever been on screen.  That bathtub scene was worth the price of admission!  For sheer adorable-ness I'd go with Brandon Routh, but for overall attractiveness, it's Henry Cavill.)

As I mentioned before, I would have much preferred a full Superman movie delving into the "Superman as God" motif, and seeing how he does or doesn't understand the way people react to him.  And then maybe have that all lead up to the Death of Superman Doomsday stuff.  Also I like what someone earlier had mentioned about keeping Superman as a beacon of hope.  (Incidentally they covered a lot of these themes, though a bit cheesily, in the Supergirl TV series.)

Supergirl is definitely handling this stuff better, IMO.

I thought that pretty much summed up stuff for me. I think what he was talking about with Superman is pretty spot on.

He lost me when he said "Lex was great. Don't believe the critics."

I agree that they seem to want Supes as an antagonist, but that just means they don't get him. They shouldn't have been allowed anywhere near this property.

I also don't think there were as many great moments in there as he thinks.

I have not seen it yet, but based on your impressions I get the sense that a lot of significant story elements got edited out. The disc/digital release of the movie is supposed to include about 30 minutes of additional footage so maybe a lot of the disconnected or disjointed aspects of the story will make more sense in the extended version.

Or it may not make a difference and it's still all about Zach Snyder's inability to reign in his fanboy nature of letting things get out of control. paranoid

Some of it could be missing story elements, but mostly it's just missing the fucking point of the characters.

Also, there's no way in hell I'm sitting through 30 more minutes of that.

I don't want to be "that guy", but I never got into his music at all and didn't understand the love.  But still a shame since I know he was very influential in his quirky way.

While I was never a huge fan of his music, the guy was ridiculously talented...a fact I never really realized until long after his "prime" in the 80's.  He was an absolutely amazing guitar player.

People miss this because of the smoke and mirrors he put up around himself (often literally).

This is a very sad loss.

Finally saw this today.

Goddammit.

Not only did they not learn anything from the wrong direction they took Superman in, they ruined Batman, too. 

They kept talking about the red S needing to mean something in the movie, as though it was a point the audience missed instead of the film makers.  Superman needs to be a beacon of hope (and on a side note, we need that), not this muddied bullshit. 

And there's, like, one rule Batman has.  No guns.  He was firing guns all over the place in this.  In his hands, in the Batmobile, in the Batwing.  WTF?!  Plus, they made him so easily manipulated?  No.  He got off a little better than Supes, but come on.

Wonder Woman was as good as anticipated, though I could have used more of her.  She seemed about right, but that's probably because they didn't let her do much.

And Lex Luthor?  No.  Just no.  He said so many meaningless, nonsense, "look how crazy I am" things.  And his plan was stupid.  Not turn-Metropolis-into-Krypton stupid, but stupid.  Why did he even bother trying to get his tiny shipment approved?  Was a man with private jets and ships and gazillions of dollars really not able to get a tiny hunk of rock into the country?  And why did he want Batman dead?  What was the point of that?  Was it because he stole the kryptonite?  But that didn't happen until right before, and the plan had been in motion for two years.  Maybe Bats stealing the kryptonite was part of the plan.  But how was he going to get Superman to fight him anyway?  He'd only just found out his identity a brief time before (does everyone need to know who he is, BTW?  Also, why was that info in the Kryptonian ship anyway?  Why would they have that?).  Also, why did he call Darkseid (assuming that's the bell he was nonsensically talking about at the end)?  And why did they let Jesse Eisenberg play him to begin with?  Terrible.

And the ring.  Who the hell sends and expensive ring like that through the mail?  And no box?  Just a loose ring in an envelope?   And why even send it home in the first place?  What was the point?  To propose, sure, but why not just have it with him?  The ring may seem like a stupid thing to get hung up on, but it's a perfect example of the bullshit they threw into this movie without putting any thought into it.

Why did the entire Metropolis staff of Wayne Enterprises sit inside a building, watching all the other buildings come tumbling down around them until they got the all-clear from the boss?  Why did that one guy stay?   Also, lucky the streets were empty enough for Bruce to zip around through. 

And then they found Martha in about three seconds.  If she was so easy to find, why the hell did they even bother with the fighting in the first place?  Also, Clark was clearly there to talk.  He said as much to Lois.  And yet, he punched Batman first and started wailing on him.

And how the hell does Perry White not know how to write a headline?!

There were little, tiny moments that worked.  Wonder Woman, as mentioned.  The way Martha showed Bats they had a connection.  A lot of scenes with Amy Adams.

But, holy shit, what a tragedy.

Not sure why MS is on board, though.

Because they have to directly compete with Sony and the PS4?  They can't become viewed as even more of the "underpowered" console that nobody wants.  And if they do it with modular upgrades like it seems they might it could even be better for existing customers than the PS4 full-purchase option.

All true, but I was hearing about Xbox One upgrades first.

Of course, the modular thing is certainly a better pill to swallow.

The idea behind this hardware upgrade is for VR and to play 1080p games with a few more bells and whistles smoothly, correct? I can't see those new specs pushing 4K resolutions, even when taking into account console overhead is much lower than a PC.

To my recollection, this was the 1st recent recent generation (Playstation 1 and beyond) where the newly released consoles were not more powerful than a high end PC.

That's an understatement. The consoles really, well, suck compared to even a mid-range PC, much less somebody who throws money at it.

And thinking about it further, as you said, there's just no way those 'low end' specs can possibly run anything decent at 4K. Hell - spending $500 on a video card itself is hardly enough for 4K on the PC.

Which just shows that it's not 4K's time yet.  And it's not time for this console upgrade, either.

I'm sure by the time the next console cycle naturally came about, 4K would be more standard, plus better handled by the possible specs.

Sony makes 4K TVs, though, so what are you gonna do?  Not sure why MS is on board, though.

Quote from: rittchard on April 20, 2016, 05:40:18 PM

I don't think the writers ran out of ideas or did it deliberately as a ratings stunt.  If anything, they knew it would piss people off so they made sure they were ready to do immediate damage control on Talking Dead the same night.  While I suspect we will never know exactly what transpired, I still believe the original script had a specific person dying (probably Daryl).  Then after they saw the rabid reaction to Glenn's death tease, they might have changed their minds and gone back to re-negotiate and re-plan things for next season, or something like that.  (Incidentally, interesting that all of a sudden the actor has his own show riding bikes across the country.)  Who knows, maybe one of the key actors themselves volunteered off the show at the very end and that changed things up (for example, see my Michonne theory). 

It's not that they ran out of ideas.  It's that they didn't want to commit to a decision, which is just as waffly and lame.

I'm guessing that they knew it would piss people off only after already having filmed it and showed it to people (including, likely, a focus group), which is why they scrambled to justify it on Talking Dead.

However, especially given how the cast were going on and on about how awful it was to film, it does seem completely plausible that not only did the original script have a character locked in, but that they may have even filmed it, then had second thoughts or, as you say, had an actor want to back out which changed things.

OTOH, Chandler's twitter comment makes that less likely, but maybe he worded it carefully or was kept in the dark.

Or maybe they filmed multiple possible endings (seems unlikely given the special effects expense, but maybe they thought it was worth it for the secrecy).

None of these possibilities change the fact that it was a terrible decision.

Probably Star Fox.

If I hadn't already played through Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, I'd get that.  If you haven't played it, give it a look.  It's a pretty great 2D experience.  Nice graphics, fun characters, good story and tight action-platforming.

Looks like I'll be passing on Star Fox.

The reviews are so-so, but it's mostly the control scheme.  I didn't realize that you flew the ship with the sticks and using the pad's gyroscopic controls for the shooting, simultaneously.

Not only does that sound awkward, it sounds more so given that I need glasses for the pad and not for the TV.  Until I get progressives, this seems like an exercise in frustration.

At least with the New 3DS, they waited 4.5 years (of course, 5+ would have been better), and it basically fixed a core feature that wasn't quite working the way it should have (3D is much, much improved in the new version).

This will absolutely affect owners of the current systems.  I have no doubt we'll see some Hyrule Legends nonsense, not to mention "Requires PS4K" getting slapped on games.  But even if we don't, it doesn't change the fact that our games are not going to run as well.  That's going to piss me off.  Maybe not as much as slapping down another chunk of change so soon into the console cycle, but it's going to gnaw at me.

I had some gift card balance left on my account so I picked this up over the weekend.  It’s very good. 

Shame about the framerate though, it’s the only thing preventing me from fully recommending the game.   


What seriously? It's a rock solid 30, yeah 60 would be nice, but with those visuals come on man don't be unreasonable.
Frame rate is more important than graphics for me.  I would rather play a worse looking game with solid 60.  Frame rate is very noticeable anytime you rotate the camera and jumping is a bit awkward. 

The fact that I’m willing to put up with it at all should be telling that I like the game, because most sub 60 experiences I won’t even touch.  Tongue


I noticed the drop to 30 FPS, too.  It feels like it should be 60.  None the less, you get used to it pretty quickly.

Warner Bros. Is in Such Denial Over Batman v Superman

Quote
Now, with DC movies dated through 2020, the outcome has led to a flurry of rumors that the studio will make adjustments — maybe add a new producer? — rather than allow BvS director Zack Snyder to proceed with the two-part Justice League. But sources with firsthand knowledge of the situation say the studio has no such plans. One says the filmmakers naturally will evaluate what went wrong with BvS, but when it comes to Justice League, “we’re not going to take a movie that’s supposed to be one thing and turn it into a copycat of something else.”

Quote
If your brain is having trouble parsing what is happening here—which is understandable, because this is mind-blowingly insane—Warner Bros. recognizes there are problems with Batman v Superman, and will take the time to figure out what those problems are...

...and then they will do nothing to fix them.

I read that article, too, but I think WB is just trying to say they're not going to just make another Avengers with DC characters instead of saying they're not going to fix anything.  They wouldn't be going over what went wrong if they weren't planning to keep things from going wrong again.

This is the same studio where

Warner Bros. executives were convinced they had the goods with BvS and were shocked when negative reviews began pouring in.


Like you I am hoping for the best but fearing the worst.


See, I had been hearing reports for months where inside sources said WB knew they had a turd on their hands and were very busy trying to spin it with marketing.

I do not believe they thought this was a winner at any stage. They certainly had numerous screenings and there's little chance any of the screening surveys came back positive.

I'm only on the third section, but it really is story-strong, which I like.  And I like the mechanics, too, so far.

However, Remedy still has a verbosity problem.  The hidden emails and notes are just too long, and a lot of them go over the same ground, backstory-wise.

At one point, my daughter came in to ask me a question right as I started listening to a radio DJ talk about the protest over the library. I asked her to wait a moment while the dialogue ended, but it went on and on and on.  It was all about the company closing the library and the students protesting, which had already been covered multiple times.  I get wanted to get the info out there in case someone missed a clue, but does it have to be so endless?

These moments need to be short in a video game.  Because what happens is that you're forcing the player to be inactive.  There's nothing interesting happening on screen while the DJ is blathering away, and you can't really go do anything else, as you're locked into that spot.  So you're just sitting and waiting.  And in a medium where your eyes, ears and hands are all generally engaged, this is a complete speed bump.  Time to check the phone, you know?

They should have given Maggie some ibuprofen and stayed home. TWD logic is - weird.

While I agree that they've made some stupid decisions this season, that wasn't one of them.  The pregnant lady was very sick.  You go to find the doctor.  They'd travelled to the place before, and we didn't even see the trip, really, which implies it was a (relatively) easy journey.

As for other dumb mistakes (like the one that would have avoided the trip all together), I'd like to say that they're trying to chalk it up to the gang getting complacent.  That's definitely been a through line for this half season.  However, they didn't really connect the complacency to the dumb mistakes in the writing, so it seems they just needed certain beats to happen in the story.   So in the end, yeah, dumb mistakes.

But apart from this terrible last episode (and really just the last moment of the last episode...the stuff getting there was pretty good, I thought), I thought they mostly upped their game this season.  And so, I've been letting the dumb mistakes go.  Filling in the complacency stuff as we went along.

This is a very old joke.  The implication is that the injured character was never able to play the piano before his injury, though it is assumed in his first question that he does.  The doctor makes the assumption when he says he can play the piano after the injury heals.  What he is really saying is that the injured man will be able to accomplish the same tasks he was able to do before.  The injured character's response, however, indicates that he has not been able to play the piano prior to this and assumes that the healing process will give him the ability to do so.  Hilarity ensues.

Well, I don't agree with most of that, and in fact, I thought the season was so satisfying that this finale was a sharp disappointment.  As mentioned earlier, they earned the Glenn thing, IMO, but you can get away with something like that once.  It was cheap to pull it again with Daryl (which is probably why they seemed to add the "You'll be all right" comment in post production), but this was out of line.

I've really enjoyed Carol's shift.  She was building to a snap of some sort, and I wasn't expecting the break to go this way.  Teaming her with Morgan for a little Kung Fu trekking could be interesting (though I don't always think they've written Morgan well, I do like the message he's trying to bring, and I think it's important for TWD).

I read a very interesting theory somewhere (some recap I can't be bothered to find now) that JSS Girl (had to look: Enid), who has been wandering alone into the woods for months and has mostly seemed hostile to the Alexandrians for taking care of her, may be a Savior herself.  This would give the timing of the roadblocks a bit more logic if their departure was orchestrated.  It also means that she's been playing Maggie and, in fact, poisoned her.

I don't know that they're going to do this, as she did seem to be honestly turning around and does seem to care about Carl, but it sure would make her a more interesting character.

if it makes you feel any better i still don't know who got killed and it's been like 6 months since i read the script

That's got to suck.

I've heard some good things about Stikbold, so I'm keeping my eye on that.

Quantum Break seems right up my alley.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Seriously, this whole episode was milking it.  The entire thing was a tease with no release whatsoever.

That reasoning about the death starting the next part of the story is bullshit.  The death ends this part, then they know and the world is changed.  The next part is into the changed world.  This is just no resolution whatsoever.  I expect better from these guys.  This is just terrible.

I would say it's as bad as the Sopranos, but that was a series ender, and we will get some resolution.  It's closer to the non-reveal of the hatch at the end of Lost's first season, but that didn't bother me nearly as much because it's not like everything happening in the season was about that hatch.  It was just one facet.

This whole half season was not about Rick encountering the Saviors.  It was about the build up to who Negan was and what he can do.  The saviors were just the delivery system that lead to Negan.  And then we didn't get the payoff.  It wasn't "The Last Day on Earth" for anyone.  Boo.

On the plus side, I'm excited that Trevor from GTA V is the second in command.

This is exactly what I pictured.  Well, except he flies, of course, instead of coming back down in some sort of aborted dance number.

Not content with just aluminum in the transparency department, science has also given us transparent wood.



I'm betting it's not bulletproof, but it is cheap, apparently.  This could lead to a lot of cool stuff.

That would have been found footage that they pulled from my stiff hand after the heart attack.
